Dennis Rodman To Train North Korea’s Olympic Basketball Team, Says the Country's Not Bad

"I’ll tell you guys one thing: take me seriously.” That was Dennis Rodman’s gloriously ironic closing remark during a press conference he held on Monday in New York City to announce that he would be training the North Korean national basketball team for the 2016 Olympics. The former NBA star visited Pyongyang for the second time in six months last week and again met with Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, whom he calls his “friend for life.”

Rodman also declared that he and other former NBA players would travel to North Korea to participate in a basketball tournament in honor of Jong Un’s birthday in January. He hopes that “basketball diplomacy” will help to bridge the gap between the secretive nation and the western world. Paddy Power, an Irish bookmaking firm, sponsored Rodman’s trip to Pyongyang and arranged Monday’s press conference.

On Sunday, Rodman made headlines around the world when he revealed that Jong Un has a daughter whose name is Ju-ae, and stated that the North Korean leader is “a good dad.”

Check out the book cover for Demi Lovato‘s “Staying Strong: 365 Days a Year”!

The 21-year-old singer unveiled the cover in a cute keek video, which you can watch below.

Vanity Fair vs The Queen of Hollywood

Is one of Hollywood's most famous magazines on Gwyneth Paltrow's bad side?

Well, according to The New York Times, the actress has emailed friends asking them not to work with Vanity Fair on a story that the monthly publication was writing about her.

"Vanity Fair is threatening to put me on the cover of their magazine," the Times claims that the Oscar-winning actress wrote, based on information received from someone who had seen the e-mail message.

"If you are asked for quotes or comments, please decline. Also, I recommend you all never do this magazine again," she reportedly added.

Two New 'Thor: The Dark World' Posters


Marvel Studios is clearly all about the Loki right now. After revealing last month that they were going back to do reshoots on Thor: The Dark World so as to give Tom Hiddleston’s grinning alter-ego more screentime, as well as revealing earlier today that some of the reshoots are based on Hiddleston’s own previous ideas that he pitched to Marvel Studios’ President of Production Kevin Feige, we now get this new poster trumpeting the Norse trickster.

At this point, one could even wonder who’s the real star of this film: Thor or Loki?

Thor: The Dark World chronicles how to fight an ancient evil that has returned to the Nine Realms, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) must team first with his Earthling lover Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), and then with his duplicitous adopted brother Loki (Hiddleston). Gee, I wonder how that one will work out for you, God of Thunder.

Natalie Portman Plans To Become A French Citizen


The 32 year-old actress is hoping to legally adopt the same nationality as her husband, choreographer Benjamin Millepied, and would even consider changing the spelling of her name to be welcomed across the Atlantic.

She told Madame Figaro magazine: "I don't have the French nationality, but I would be love to get it. But I don't know if it's possible because I already have an American and an Israeli passport ... Perhaps I should add an 'h' to my name to make it sound more French [Nathalie]? My father named me after a song by Gilbert Bécaud. I grew up in a very Francophile atmosphere."

The couple and their two-year-old son Aleph are planning to move to Paris next year and have already begun house-hunting for the perfect pad in the French capital.

Natalie confirmed: "We're looking for an apartment! Benjamin and I are moving in autumn 2014 when his job at the Paris Opera Ballet starts.

"It's obviously a massive change to quit Los Angeles for Paris. I don't know what my life is going to be like, but I'm so excited."

The 32-year-old brunette beauty, who met Benjamin on the set of dark ballerina drama Black Swan, is also looking forward to exploring her passion for dance thanks to her partner's prestigious new role.

Natalie said: "I knew about and liked the ballet long before the experience of 'Black Swan' - I'd even toyed with the idea of becoming a dancer, like every other little girl.

"But to be able to approach the dancers up close, to see them practice, is definitely an extraordinary experience."

honey, i shrunk the playstation 4

Sony’s new PlayStation Vita TV lets you play over 1,300 PlayStation Vita games (they mean all the playstation 1 and indie games on psn...) on your television, essentially transforming the handheld platform into a low-cost, low-profile home game console.

But if Sony gets everything right — and that’s a big if — PS Vita TV could become much more than a low-cost alternative to high-end game consoles. It could itself become a high-end game console.

As it stands, PS Vita TV is already a pretty attractive value. It’s a low-cost (9,954 yen in Japan, which will surely translate to $99.99 for the eventual U.S. launch) machine with a big library. In Japan, Sony has a massive collection of games on its PlayStation Network download service that will work with Vita TV right out of the box. Most of these games are from the libraries of the original PlayStation console and the PSP. Throw in the ability to play Vita native games and use video streaming services and it’s an attractive set-top box, something on the order of Apple TV or Ouya, but with all the power of PlayStation behind it.

There may never be a satisfying answer, since the show's dual father figures Vince Gilligan and Bryan Cranston don't even agree on what it is.

Keri Hilson Says “Sorry” Track About Beyoncé Isn’t On New Album But She’s Working With Hov


Keri Hilson can’t catch a break. The R&B struggling singers career never took off after controversy surrounding her first hit single “Turnin Me On” was suspected of firing shots at Ci-ERROR and Beyonce in the remix.

The Beyhive from that day forth has gone out their way to make her life a living hell.

Keri has had to go on record to breakdown the beef and producer Timbaland even said he helped her record a new track apologizing to King Bey.

According to Revolt TV:

“And I got this one song that I did with Keri on my album called “Sorry.” And Keri actually tells the story about the whole Beyonce thing and how she was sorry about it because she really wasn’t talking about Beyonce but other people…it says it in the song.“

But, not so fast! Keri now says the song was “misrepresented” and probably will never see the light of day.

Via The Grape Juice:

“That track really got misrepresented though. Whoever filmed that video cut him off and faded the video off to make it seem like it was the end of the sentence. Maybe his intention was to clear up what he previously said. I’m not sure if that record will even make the album.”

Cool. Now, going back to Timbaland, we’ve also heard of your involvement with his new album. Can you tell us about that?

“I’ve heard the music and it’s dope. He and Jay-Z have a record and I’m on it.”

Keri baby, for your safety, stay hidden

Superior Assassin coming to PS3 and 360.

Ubisoft has announced two new Assassin’s Creed games. Assassion’s Creed Liberation HD, as its name suggests, is a remake of last year’s PlayStation Vita game for consoles, while Assassin's Creed Pirates is a new mobile title.

According to Ubisoft, Liberation HD offers “a complete graphical overhaul, re- mastered music and sound effects, a revamped gameplay experience, and new missions that dive deeper into Aveline’s story.”

Liberation HD tells the same story as the Vita installment, though certain optional cutscenes have been woven into the main story in order to make it clearer. The game is in development at Ubisoft Sofia -- the same team that worked on the Vita version -- and is set to hit Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC as a digital title in 2014.


I'm really not interested in buying a Vita or playing Black Flag at all, so this is great news.

The Situation: I Got Hooked On Pain Pills After DWTS Injury.

Former "Jersey Shore" cast member Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino realized he had an addiction problem on a trip to Australia in February 2012.

He ran out of a prescription to treat an injury suffered during a 2010 stint on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars."

"All I had to do was get dressed for a family function and I couldn't do that," Sorrentino said Monday in an interview with The Associated Press. "The shirt was laid out, the belt, the pants, everything. The shower was on. I couldn't even get out of bed," he said. Then he thought, "If I can't do that how am I going to continue?"

There were rumors at the time that he was battling an addiction to illicit drugs or alcohol but Sorrentino maintains that wasn't the case and says "those rumors were definitely false. I didn't mix anything."

Julia Roberts Is Back With a Vengeance in ‘August: Osage County’

After a string of disappointments, Julia Roberts delivers one of the best performances of her career in the ensemble comedy-drama ‘August: Osage County,’ which made its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Monday night. There was a time, in the late aughts, when Julia Roberts was considered the biggest film actress in the world. She was America’s Sweetheart, and when she unleashed that 1,000-watt smile, she could lift the spirits of even the most hardened cynics.

From 1997 to 2000, six movies in a row starring Roberts grossed more than $100 million at the box office, culminating in Erin Brockovich—a drama about a single mother of three who tussles with a dirty energy corporation. Roberts was paid $20 million for the film, which went on to gross an inexplicable $256 million worldwide and bag her the Best Actress Oscar.

But ever since her delicious turn as a saucy Southern debutante in 2007’s Charlie Wilson’s War, things haven’t been too peachy for Roberts. There was the disastrous ensemble rom-com Valentine’s Day, presumably done as a favor to her Pretty Woman director, Garry Marshall; the frustratingly banal and wrongheaded Eat Pray Love; and last year’s riff on the Snow White fairy tale Mirror Mirror, which was all pomp and no circumstance. And even cinephiles would have a hard time recalling Fireflies in the Garden or Larry Crowne.

Which brings us to the present. Roberts, at 45, has sprung from movie jail with Joker-like gusto and turned in arguably the finest screen performance of her career in August: Osage County, which had its world premiere at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival on Monday night. Her turn is a master class in deconstruction and a role that brings her career full circle, from Steel Magnolias to the spectacular now.

Ubisoft reveals beautiful new side-scroller, Child of Light

Ubisoft has finally gone over and beyond to deliver something truly mesmerizing. Their newest game, Child of Light, was recently announced with a debut trailer and it looks every bit the kind of game that you would add to your shelf and feel proud that it sits there amongst the legends of gaming history.

The debut video plays out like a visual poem, giving gamers a small taste of what the adventure will have in store for players while also rolling out a cascade whimsical colors and backdrops that will soften even the most hardened of artistic hearts.

Combining the 3D hand painted aesthetic with classic turn-based RPG mechanics was a brilliant move, and it melds so well with the presentation that, as mentioned, it's deeply mesmerizing. One user was even compelled enough by the onslaught of audio and video beauty to comment and say “One of those history making games." Indeed it is.

Players will assume the role of Aurora, a child stolen from her home who must also reclaim the land from an evil queen.

Patrick Plourde, Creative Director, Ubisoft commented about the new game, saying...
“Ubisoft’s strengths include its diversity and the freedom it gives its creative teams,”... “We want Child of Light to be like a playable poem, a love letter to art and video games."

Kristen Stewart displays noticeable hair loss due to 'stress following split from Robert Pattinson'


She's had a difficult few months following her split from Robert Pattinson.

And it seems Kristen Stewart's traumatic personal life has taken a toll on the 23-year-old actress, who has been seen with what seems to be a large bald patch on her head.

Kristen, who usually conceals her locks beneath hats and caps, was pictured in Berlin, Germany, last month displaying the dramatic hair loss on the right side of her scalp - thought to be down to stress.

In fact, the hair loss is so severe that Kristen's friends are said to be getting increasingly concerned about her fragile state of mind.

A source told Now magazine: 'Kristen's circle are so concerned about her that two of her friends have flown to Germany to see her.

'They want to take her to a de-stressing yoga retreat on the outskirts of Berlin.

'They've also begged Rob to visit her on set. They fear the stress is getting worse because she's been trying to make contact with him and he's ignoring all of her calls.'

The Weeknd Revels In Raw Emotion On 'Kiss Land'

Driven by a voice that's generally pushed up to a verge-of-hysteria falsetto, The Weeknd's Gothic style interrogates a lot of the clichés of boilerplate R&B. As a Toronto-based singer-songwriter and producer, Abel Tesfaye became an Internet phenomenon when he began self-releasing free mixtapes of woozy, haunted R&B songs in 2010. While he later repackaged this material for a collection called Trilogy, Kiss Land is his proper major-label debut.

What's most remarkable about The Weeknd's music, besides its deeply narcotic electronic arrangements, is how remote and twisted love generally seems amid the familiar trappings of pop-music bliss. But on the more conventional tracks, when he tries to have it both ways, his approach can verge on schtick.

Regardless, the hat trick of Tesfaye's art is that, by singing about emotional numbness, he makes music that's the opposite of numbing — raw, probing and totally alive.

No More Green Screens for Taylor Kitsch


TORONTO -- Have you missed Taylor Kitsch? He's dipping a toe in publicity again, thanks to his new indie, The Grand Seduction.

The charming comedy (which has distribution plans in the U.K. and Canada thus far) encourages the on-screen charm that made Kitsch famous in cult hit Friday Night Lights. He plays Dr. Lewis, a cricket-loving, big city doctor courted by a struggling harbor town in Newfoundland. If he signs on to stay, the fishing town will win a bid for a new factory contract. If he grows bored of the whiskered townspeople, the paltry restaurant and the one young, single girl who seemingly loathes him, hope is out the window.

"This one was just a lot of fun," says Kitsch, who stars opposite Brendan Gleeson (uproariously funny as the town's go-to strategist) in The Grand Seduction. "To go to work with Brendan, to be in Newfoundland for six weeks. I had a great schedule. I learned to fly fish. I'm terrible. It's no joke to catch salmon on a fly rod."

During that time he bulked up for Lone Survivor (out Dec. 27), Peter Berg's studio-sized take on a failed 2005 SEAL mission to kill a Taliban leader. "I saw Lone three weeks ago," says Kitsch. "Oh my god. It's so good. It's so tough to watch. It's ridiculously emotional. I broke three times watching it."

What's the star been up to since coming under fire for a trio of commercial disappointments in 2012? He recalls the seven straight months of "crazy, exhausting" globe-trotting press John Carter, Battleship and Savages required.

"It is refreshing, to be blunt," he says. "I went back to why I do what I do. It's nice not to have a 200-foot green screen in front of me. And it's going to be a long time before I do. We've been offered another huge, crazy-big movie but we're not doing it." We? "Me and my team," he says with a smile. "This is such a team, man."

After Lone Survivor, Kitsch will appear in HBO film The Normal Heart, and he's written and directed a 30-minute short film. "It''s nice to have just set in and worked again and got into why you do what you do," he says. "It's just been incredibly fulfilling these last few."

So now - after the pair attended The Book of Mormon musical in London's West End together last week - those inevitable 'OMGZ THEY'RE TOGETHER' whisperings are popping up again...and this time they're apparently having some kind of secret 'on/off' fling. Hmm.

Chatting to Look magazine, an insider said: "They have great chemistry. Sure, they've always agreed to keep things super-casual and private because of their crazy worlds, but Harry genuinely likes Cara a lot - he has done ever since they met three years ago.
"They've actually had an on/off thing going all this time when they're in the same city, but they've never had the chance to give a real relationship a shot. I can't imagine she wants to join the list of women who have been Harry'd."

The source continued yapping: "Of course he might profess his love for her - and he has done that on many occasions - but she's heard it all before. He said that to her just a month before he went public with Taylor, so I imagine she's learned her lesson."
Probably, yeah.
What do you think? Are Harry and Cara actually a thing 'when they're in the same city' (?) or is this another load of BS?


This commentary is atrocious, but it is interesting that they are still hanging out, whether it means that they're back together or just chilling.

Leah Remini on Ellen: Some scientologists have threatened to murder me

Leah Remini is finally speaking out about her break from the Church of Scientology.

The former "King of Queens" star appeared on Monday's episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" to promote her participation in the upcoming season of "Dancing With the Stars."

However, her name has been in the news all summer because of her July defection from Scientology -- the controversial faith founded by sci-fi writer L. Ron Hubbard that includes John Travolta and Tom Cruise among its members. Other celebrity members who have broken with the organization include Nicole Kidman, "Arrested Development's" Jeffrey Tambor, comedian Jerry Seinfeld, actress Demi Moore and director-screenwriter Paul Haggis.

So DeGeneres asked her why she chose to leave too.

"My mother got involved when we were very young, so it's all we ever really knew," Remini said. "But over time, my eyes opened and I could just no longer be affiliated with the organization and my family felt the same, so we left."

"How are you?" DeGeneres asked. "I hear it's different than leaving another religion, so are you OK?"

"I'm OK," she said. "It's hard. We lost friends that can no longer talk to us who are still in the organization."

"Now, that is a thing? When you leave the church they can't talk to you and you can't talk to them?" DeGeneres asked.

"Correct. And these are friends that we've had for dozens of years," Remini continued. "But I have great friends, other friends that are not in the church, that have stood by us. Our family is stronger, we're together and that's all I can ask for."

The "American Horror Story: Coven" cast is finally starring in a creepy new teaser and it is awesome.

Titled "Initiation," the teaser features Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Taissa Farmiga, Gabourey Sidibe and more of the "Coven" cast along with some kind of cow/man creature and a ton of other animals. The official description of the teaser: "The doors are open ... dare to come inside?"

The new season is set in New Orleans and features Jessica Lange as Fiona, a "Supreme" to a coven of witches. Here's how FX officially describes the new season:

"American Horror Story: Coven" tells the secret history of witches and witchcraft in America. Over 300 years have passed since the turbulent days of the Salem witch trials and those who managed to escape are now facing extinction. Mysterious attacks have been escalating against their kind and young girls are being sent away to a special school in New Orleans to learn how to protect themselves. Wrapped up in the turmoil is new arrival, Zoe (Taissa Farmiga), who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona (Jessica Lange), the long-absent Supreme, sweeps back into town, determined to protect the Coven and hell-bent on decimating anyone who gets in her way.

10 Great Julia Roberts Quotes From 'August: Osage County' Press Conference + She Cusses on Live TV

Meryl Streep wasn't in attendance at this morning's packed press conference for "August: Osage County" at the Toronto International Film Festival. But Julia Roberts (who joked that Streep's absence was simply due to her "sleeping") helped make up for it with nearly an hour of lively Julia-isms.

The rest of the present talent -- including director John Wells, writer Tracy Letts and actors Chris Cooper, Ewan McGregor, Julianne Nicholson, Abigail Breslin and Dermot Mulroney -- all offered some nice soundbites as well, but we couldn't help but keep this little list exclusive to Ms. Roberts, who seems to just be becoming more and more of a hoot with age.

Production on Mortal Instruments sequel "shut down indefinitely"

Constantin Film has delayed “The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes,” TheWrap has learned.

An individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap that production, which was slated to start next week, has shut down indefinitely. A press release from Constantin did not address when production may resume.

“The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,” based on the bestselling fantasy novel by Cassandra Clare, grossed $37 million worldwide on a reported production budget of $60 million, without taking prints and advertising into account.

“Constantin Film” has a long tradition of adapting books to the big screen. Pushing back the start of production of ‘City of Ashes’ was a decision we did not take lightly. But after speaking with all of our partners on the creative and distribution side, it was clear that it will be beneficial to have more time to reposition the film in the current market place,” said executive producer Martin Moszkowicz of Constantin. “‘The Mortal Instruments’ series has an incredibly loyal and ardent fan base and is a bestselling book series. While taking Cassandra Clare’s vision to the screen, we want to make sure to draw on the full potential of the franchise.”

Harald Zwart was returning to direct the movie, which was slated to start production next week.

Stars Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower and Kevin Zegers had signed on to return, while Sigourney Weaver had also been expected to join the ensemble.

Outside of “The Hunger Games,” YA movies have struggled of late, with “The Host” and “Beautiful Creatures” joining “Mortal Instruments” among Hollywood’s high-profile under performers.

"Does anyone have a cigarette?" asked Courtney Love as she took the stage at the Dream Downtown's Gallery, where Hole's drummer, Scott Lipps, was celebrating his new book last night. Someone in the audience tossed her one, and she blew smoke into the microphone. "Thanks!" She then delivered a wall-shaking performance of "Malibu" and "Violet," peppering her twenty-minute set with a running commentary about current pop stars (she called Miley Cyrus "a hillbilly" and Katy Perry "boring") while audience members Paris Hilton, Taryn Manning, and Kate Nash giggled awkwardly.

Arcade Fire Play Secret Show in Montreal

Billed as the Reflektors, band celebrates new single in costume

Arcade Fire adopted the name of their new single and upcoming album when they played an intimate last-minute concert yesterday as the Reflektors at the Salsatheque in their hometown of Montreal, CBC News reports.

About 100 tickets, priced at just $9, were reportedly available for the Reflektors' gig, which also had a unique dress code: "Formal attire or costume MANDATORY. (Formal wear = suit, dress or something fancy)," read a tweet from Arcade Fire. Below, you can watch a video of the band arriving at the venue and greeting fans while decked out in the ginormous heads they donned in the "Reflektor" video directed by Dutch filmmaker Anton Corbjin.

The surprise show capped off a busy day for Arcade Fire. After plenty of teasing, the indie-rockers finally released "Reflektor," a thumping, nearly eight-minute opus produced by former LCD Soundsystem mastermind James Murphy and featuring guest vocals from David Bowie. The song was also accompanied by two music videos, one from Corbjin, the other an interactive clip from Vincent Morisset.

The single shares a title with the album, a double LP that is available for pre-order before its October 29th release date. Arcade Fire will also be the musical guest on this year's season premiere of Saturday Night Live, hosted by Tina Fey.

K. Michelle On Tamar Braxton: 'Stop Hiding Behind Vince's Man Boobs, Shut Up and Sing'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

K. Michelle is feeling a bit slighted after delivering a nice gesture by picking up Tamar Braxton's album, "Love and War" last week. After hearing the "She Did That" and "Hot Sugar" singer laugh over her gesture and "low" album sales on Power 105.1 radio's "The Breakfast Club" Monday, K. Michelle opted to fire back via Twitter and she didn't hold back....

"I'm really just trying to stay positive and live my life. I bought the album 2supprt her and everything. I don't get it. But I'm the bully?" wrote K. Michelle. "You keep throwing rocks at me and then u run and hide behind Vince's man boobs! U not above getting checked shady boots! Don't worry about my album sales, worry about finding ur original face! My sales are REAL, nothing political ALL HARD WORK."

Taking on Tamar's comment that they aren't even in "the same conversation" because she's allegedly sold 100k in three days, K. Michelle went on to allege that her husband, Vince, bought a good portion of those albums.

"Humble yourself! You bout SEVERAL of those albums. I sold over a 100,000 albums 2, just 4 days after u. SHE is not winning like SHE thinks," K. Michelle wrote. "Now stop coming for me. There's enough room for everybody! Just shut up and sing! Leave me alone! Damn."

Apology Letter From A Teenage James Franco Resurfaces

Michael Phillips Moskowitz, the CEO of the men's shopping site Bureau of Trade, says that during a recent move at his parents' Palo Alto home, he unearthed a binder containing an apology letter from a young Franco, expressing his most heartfelt regret for egging the Moskowitz family's house.

The facts: On a sunny day in 1992 in Palo Alto, California, Ted Franco, the 14-year-old boy who would later change his name to James and go on to star on daytime soap opera General Hospital as a serial killer named “Franco,” egged a home. The vandalized home belonged (and still belongs) to the parents of BUREAU founder Michael Phillips Moskowitz. The letter that young Ted wrote after he was caught has recently resurfaced. It is truly a heartfelt, genuine expression of how sorry young James Franco was that he got caught. That is all. “I hope we can just forget all this and put it behind us,” he writes. Well, James, the egg doesn’t come out easily. And now, in the smallest possible way, it’s on your face too.

AMC Cancels The Killing - AGAIN!

We have made the difficult decision not to move forward with a fourth season of The Killing. We want to thank our great partners at Fox Television Studios, creator Veena Sud, an extraordinary cast and the dedicated fans who watched."

After its revival, the third season of The Killing was largely in line with the second in ratings. The third season opened to a steady 1.8 million viewers (563,000 adults 18-49), dipped in the middle before rising back up to 1.5 million viewers in its summer finale. That number bested the sophomore run's finale, but was still a long way from the record 2.7 million viewers that first tuned in to the drama when it opened on April 3, 2011.

'Bone Season' author describes dream film version of her novel


If Samantha Shannon got her way, Benedict Cumberbatch and Alexander Skarsgård would be two of the stars of the film version of her debut novel, "The Bone Season."

Cumberbatch would play a clairvoyant crime-lord (or "mime-lord," in the parlance of the book), and Skarsgard would be the Swedish doctor with a secret who becomes a love interest for our heroine. (And who wouldn't want to see the sweeter side of Skarsgård?)

"I do have a dream cast," Samantha Shannon told And a dream director, the man behind such films as "Pan's Labyrinth" and "Pacific Rim": "Guillermo del Toro would be my first choice."

Also on the dream cast list for smaller but key parts: Game of Thrones actress Michelle Fairley as a voyant fugitive named Antoinette Carter, and British actor Michael Obiora as Julian, a voyant captured along with our heroine Paige, who fast becomes her close friend.

But Shannon finds it difficult to imagine who would play the leads, Paige and her love interest Warden, in part because Warden and the rest of his species, the Rephaim, are not of this world. Luckily, if it takes movie magic such as performance capture (where an actor's movements are recorded to make fantastic characters look realistic) to render the Rephaim, a giant race whose eyes burn different colors, Shannon's signed up with the right production company: Andy Serkis' Imaginarium Studios.

"I'm confident the book is in safe hands," she told "They specialize in creating things that aren't there, and making them look fantastic."

Could listening to Miley Cyrus make you more INTELLIGENT? Scientist claims certain pop songs can

A British scientist has claimed that listening to songs by Miley Cyrus or Justin Timberlake while studying has a calming effect on the mind that aids logical thought.

Despite not being perhaps the most obvious choice of relaxing tracks, the clinical psychologist believes pop songs with 50 to 80 beats per minute allow the brain to learn and remember new facts more easily.

Dr Emma Gray, who specialises in cognitive behavioural therapy at The British CBT and Counselling Service in London, said emotive pop and rock songs including Katy Perry's 'Firework' song can produce a heightened state of excitement that is likely to enhance creative performance in subjects such as English, Drama and Art.

She believes students who listen to classical music while they study, do better in maths exams, while listening to music while revising makes students smarter.

Dr Gray's research, which was commissioned by music streaming service Spotify to investigate the effect music has on studying, found it is important to choose the right music for the topic a person is studying as it stimulates learning and can enhance concentration.

She said students who listen to classical music with 60 to 70 beats per minute while they study, score on average 12 per cent more in their Maths exams - the equivalent of climbing a whole grade.

Dr Gray explained the left side of the brain is used to process factual information and solve problems, which are key skills in Science, Humanities and Languages.

The research found songs like 'We Can't Stop' by Miley Cyrus or 'Mirrors' by Justin Timberlake fostered logical thoughts and helped students to learn and recall new facts.
